If These Walls Could Talk centers on the imprint of four small fingers in an antique brick found near our campus and how other enslaved Africans contributed to the architectural beauty of the College and surrounding sites. This documentary is the first in a diversity docuseries that will take viewers on a transformative journey with reflective questions prompting them to discover, embrace, and positively respond to the College’s pluralistic history. Meet Charissa Owens, Director of Diversity Education and Training and the project’s leader, and Bernard Powers, Professor Emeritus of History, Director of the College’s Center for the Study of Slavery in Charleston, and Interim Director of Charleston’s International African American Museum, and hear their vision for this important project.  Registration includes a reception offering craft beers, fine wines, non-alcoholic beverages, and light hors d’oeuvres as well as fellowship with alumni, students, faculty, and staff. Net proceeds will benefit the docuseries project.
